DoubleDiamond Hard

I make my work on a 1st Generation iPad on the Brushes App. Each work is a result of hours of careful layering of colour and line with special attention paid to composition and depth. I would describe myself as an 'automatist'.

I was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in September 2011. I am thankfully now in remission as of March 2012.

I left my job and my life in London to get over the physical and emotional impact this diagnosis had on me. In the inevitable fallout, there became a need for an alter ego, one with the confidence I had lost through treatment and who could report from the outer edges of my psyche, a grim and unfriendly place. DoubleDiamond Hard was born in April 2012. April was my darkest, most difficult month since recovery.

Now, when I need armour, it is invariably DDH who comes to the rescue.

In DDH world, acid and laser breathing creatures and fetish objects, future weapons and talismen emerge from a deep black space or deadly whiteout where the macabre is king and the future is all-consuming.The act of reportage, of living in this world of nasties and dark events has merged the two egos and helped me come back.When I paint I am completely neutral. Nothing pulls or pushes me. I am hard as diamonds.

I now reside in Devon, teaching again, fully functioning and content, for the moment, juggling my two aliases, Miss Wright and DoubleDiamond Hard.
